I keep getting IE error around the rinse part. It keeps giving me the error and I keep repeating it and it won't ever finish. I looked at the manual and it tells me that water is insufficient and check the inlet and water hose but nothing his wrong. I looked at a couple of forums and it says it may be the water fill valve but I am unsure. The water (both hot and cold) runs fine when it begins. However, I notice that the water drizzles in the main wash when the rinse start, but the water flows real well in the softener and prewash. Is this common. if it is, then why am i having this problem over and over... ???can someone please help.

Re: LG wm1832cw Washer IE error
Plug off the wall, etc. Remove the rear cover. There is a thin tube coming from the control panel area to the base where the water exits, this should not be blocked, remove from top and blow to check, refit. Next clean out your outlet filter, it could be clogged, refit.
When u hav rinse problems, it is usually the outlet filter.
Could you have changed the supply lines??? The new braided lines for the supplies are directional. What I mean is you can only install them in one direction, with the tag to the water shut off. They have a built in back flow preventer built into the hose. If one or both are backwards the IE light will come on. Hope this helps.

error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the
control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply
needs to be reset.
Step 1: Unplug the washing machine. Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds. Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.
Are there soap suds visible in the drum? Over-sudsing
is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency)
detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In
addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow
these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.
Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve. Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer. Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected. Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle. Step
5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items
from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and
then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light
residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the
drum of the washer.
The error you are receiving is a bad water valve inlet problem. It's typically the cold inlet, but it's better to replace both.
Depending on the type of water you have, the valves could have lots of sentiment blocking the filter screens inside the valve, which can be cleaned, you'll just need to remove the water hose attached, and check.
If your valves look clear, then they have just possibly failed, and need to be replaced.
firstly u have to take the wire off it with a screwdriver unscrew it take it off then watch how the old on pulls off as there is a lip all around this rubber and it as to bed into the metal drum just see how the old one comes off once you have put the new one on put the wire back around it or it could be a metal strat wich tightens up with a screwdriver,rgds,paul
hi linda from what you describe? the machine does wash cycle? but won't spin cycle? if the machine is a couple of yrs old ? it may well be the motor that runs machine is in need of some new brushes fitting ? they are not expensive and may be worn too low to activate the higher revolutions needed for spin cycle it is not a difficult job to drop motor off and check/replace if you have a good male/ friend? with elec competence ? have found this problem on other machines and most recent zanusi cost £5 for 2x new brushes as apposed to the £££££s the lady was estimated for a timer ? by plumber so why not check it out b4 you part with money ? best wishes/luck
I just was searching for the same exact error on my LG WM1832CW washer. From reading the other posts on different manufacturers I realized this was a pump clog issue for mine too. There is a small door near the bottom of the front of the washer and if you open that there is a filter basket. Once you start turning it and break the seal, the water will come out quickly, have 2 flat large tupperwares so you can catch the water. Once you clean out that filter it's good to go. A 5 minute job.
FE means water is overflowing. Check pump filter. Check water level switch and hose. Also check that drain hose isn't too low causing it to refill itself continuously. In any case the drain pump should run for 4 minutes to try and eliminate the extra fill
